Please consider hanging an evergreen branch or other kind of branch on the front door of your home in a way of being in solidarity for Palm Sunday. Branches can remain throughout Holy Week.

Beginning this Monday, April 6, the parish office will be closed. With the importance of the "Stay at Home" order we do not want to promote stopping by the office. Mary will have calls forwarded to her phone. If there is essential business, please call 264-8087. Father Bob will continue to be available at 264-8115.

 

Parish staff will continue their work at their flexible discretion. Please do not compromise the office building with unnecessary admittance. Weekly Bulletins will continue and remain available on the homepage of the website. If you would like a printed copy please call the office number, 264-8087 and one will be mailed to you.

 

The church will remain open as it always has been. Please do not try to enter the church during the designated celebration times.


 
The Paschal Triduum times are posted but will be celebrated in private. Please see the schedule in the bulletin on the homepage of the website. We will be able to livestream at these times and encourage you to participate in your homes. Please copy and keep the Spiritual Communion Prayer  to say as the priest receives communion and unite with his prayers.

 

Beginning with the Octave of Easter and continuing through the duration of the Stay at Home order all weekday Masses will be at 12:15 pm and will be private, closed door Masses. Please join us spiritually, at home. These Masses will not be live streamed. We will, however, try to live stream the 10:00 am Masses on Sunday. Please watch our website (www.sacredheartelkrapids.org) or follow us on facebook (www.facebook.com/elkrapidssacredheart) for more information about participating in the online liturgical celebrations of Holy Week and beyond. These will be your best resources for the most up to date information.


 


Thank you to all who mailed or dropped off envelopes for our financial support these last two weeks. If you are able to continue, please do. Most importantly take care of your own needs first during this difficult time. If the parish is able to help you in any way please call the office.
